<b>BGTeam and a video gaming website BestGamer.ru are presenting you Age of Pirates (SeaDogs 3): Secrets of Far Seas v 1.0</b> First or last it had to happen, first or last it had to be released. Itâ€™s all about v 1.0. We had been going towards that release more than two years and finally it happened! The final release date had been postponed many times and there were some explanations of those delays. But we wonâ€™t discuss it right now (you can find out more information on this subject in BGTeam.pdf, which youâ€™ll find in a root folder of the programme). So, welcome Secrets of Far Seas v 1.0.0406. <b>Installation of the expansion pack</b> â€¢To install the expansion pack â€œAge of Pirates: Secrets of Far Seasâ€, you will require an installed Corsairs 3 game of any 1C version. â€¢Choose the folder with the installed game as a final destination. â€¢Everythingâ€™s done now. In a root of the folder with the installed game launch config.exe, save the settings, then launch engine.exe and you are in the game. <b>Information about the expansion pack:</b> Have you ever wondered yourself as a real Buccaneer, who robs civil vessels or as a Privateer, who fights for one of the nations in their conflict in the Caribbean? Or you probably wondered to feel the smell or the spirit of a sea which is so dangerous and so attractive? The game â€œAge of Piratesâ€ gives you this opportunity, but there are a lot of serious defects. Youâ€™ve certainly heard about them. Out team had decided to change sad tendencies and we changed them. Weâ€™ve made a new â€œAge of Piratesâ€ which is really interesting to play. We added a lot of new locations, a few vessels, a new main character; we created a new interesting and exciting main story and added a lot of thrilling secondary quests. The expansion pack changed the original â€œAge of Piratesâ€ game out of all recognition. The action begins in a European port of San Sebastian. A young naval officer called Peter Blake has known, that he is appointed to command a vessel, which sails to the New World. Coming to the Caribbean, Peter Blake finds himself put into prison where he learns about the mysterious treasure. To get this treasure becomes protagonistâ€™s main aim. Over the time of his search, our hero will meet lots of vivid characters, will take part in hundreds of adventures, which will help Peter to guess a riddle of this treasure. We move through the interesting story not as an observer, but directly on behalf of the main hero. From time to time, the protagonist will express his opinion about whatâ€™s going on and whatâ€™s happening around him. Moreover, there are some recreated stories which are suggested by â€œPirates of the Caribbeanâ€ trilogy. These quests are finely entwined with the main story giving it more special charm. In these quests, the player is given an opportunity to try himself as Captain Jack Sparrow, William Turner, Hector Barbossa and even Davy Jones himself. The characters of trilogy appearances are reconstructed with a photographic accuracy. During the completion of the main story Peter Blake will be faced with a betrayal and a real friendship. Maybe he will even meet his true love on his way. The game wonâ€™t fetter you with its story. If you donâ€™t like to complete the main quest missions, you can always leave it and to go to rob some civil vessels, attack any nation forces or to run some business. But donâ€™t forget that the main aim is still the completing of the main story quests. Many of the non playable characters of the game are the unique persons with their own personal stories and problems. <b>The list of the features comparing with the original â€œAge of Pirates: Caribbean Talesâ€:</b> <b>Version 1.0.0406</b> 1.
